Why Doesn’t Facebook Display An Image?

Last update: 10 August, 2017

There are multiple reasons why Facebook or other social media platforms may not display the image you selected. Facebook, as well as many other social media platforms, uses custom meta data called Open Graph.

A
Make sure you have enabled Open Graph tags following the steps in this article.
B
Does the Facebook debug tool provide an error about your image?
C
Does the image meet Open Graph image recommendations? Is the image too small? Too large? In portrait orientation?
D
Manually set an Open Graph image ( this image is properly formatted) under the Social tab of the Yoast SEO for the individual page/post/article and force update Facebook’s cache of the page.
